The process of the match paints to be intense and open from the initial stage, as it happened in the Velodrome. For this reason and knowing that Spaniards and French attack better than they defend, we believe that the bet “more 1.5 goals” can end up being a winner.
Remember that the Basques need to risk losing by two goals the tie, this can take advantage of the Gauls to score against.
The Basques arrive renewed and motivated to this duel after defeating Leganés 2-0 at home by the Santander League. Now the objective of the squad is to overcome the key, having to score 2 goals at least to be able to do it. Of course, they need to improve in defense and not leave spaces when dialing. Ideally, the local factor should tip the balance in your favor.
Playing as a local in the new San Mamés, Athletic Bilbao has reaped diverse results for the Spanish league. In general, it can be said that he lacks regularity in this condition (5 wins, 7 parities and 2 losses). A detail to consider of these numbers is that he only scored 13 goals and gave 6 on his fence (balance between lines when acting as a local). It comes to equal 1-1 with Eibar, to tie 0-0 with Las Palmas, to overcome 2-1 at Malaga, to equal 1-1 with Valencia and to beat the “pepineros” as was said in the paragraph above. For the Europa League, he lost 1-2 to Spartak Moscow for the return match of the 32nd final.
The Gauls defeated Toulouse 1-2 as visitors, managing to cut a streak of several games without winning (two against PSG by league and Cup and the 1-1 draw against Nantes). With 59 points in the table, the goal of the team is to move away from Lyon in the fight for the third place in the Champions League and get closer to Monaco in the fight to get directly into this exceptional competition. As it is already known, it is still an offensive and vertical one thanks to the work of the technician Rudi García.
Away from the Velodrome, Marseille has recorded different scores for Ligue1 (8 wins, 4 draws and 3 falls). In this condition he has registered 26 goals and transferred 21 in his goal, proving to be unbalanced between the lines. In this 2018, he beat Rennes 0-3, defeated Caen 0-2, leveled 2-2 against St. Etienne, lost 3-0 to PSG and beat Toulouse 1-2 as mentioned in the previous paragraph.
Insider TIP: Over 2.5 goals – 1.86
